Student Citizen Awards
Nominations are now open for schools to participate in the 2021 Student Citizen of the Year awards
Sponsored by the Department of Education, these awards are free for Northern Territory schools to participate in and recognise students who show a sense of fair play, generosity of spirit, concern for others, cultural understanding, positive attitude and involvement within the school and/or the wider community.
All Northern Territory schools can nominate one student per primary, middle and/or senior secondary school. Combined schools can recognise one student per level.
Schools decide how their student is selected. For example teachers can nominate students or students could apply to receive the award.
Awards are then presented at either the end of year school assembly or at a local council flag raising ceremony on Australia Day.
We encourage community sporting groups and clubs to hold a competition or event on or around Australia Day, 26 January to contribute to Australia Day celebrations throughout the Northern Territory.
This program is free to participate in and offers your club an opportunity to promote your programs and encourage new members.
